      Every Silver Lining Has A Cloud
      "Same"

      The self-titled debut album from the French duo of Guillaume Pintout (guitar) and Cyrille Holodiuk (percussion) displays in 10 mostly-instrumental tracks a dense and poetic sound of aching beauty. Guillaume & Cyrille decided to mix their experiences and influences. The music flows like slow waves of vibrations. Layers of guitars end up a powerful symphony which brings immense depth to each song. Colors and personality of the music comes from Guillaume and Cyrille energy and common inspiration. They want to express beauty in contradiction with the ugliness of the world. To make their vision comes true, they found the missing ingredient: Haluka Chimoto, a very talented cellist who played for Philharmonic Orchestra of Strasbourg and Tours, in France as well as the Tokyo City Philharmonic.
      The tone is set immediately with the album opener, “Against all odds,” a lonesome Atlantic gale-blown ode to the wind-swarming of emotion and otherworldliness. And while “A stolen life" truly encapsulates the delicately mournful, tense and dramatic mood that heightens most of the album (unlocking, as such, a panorama of desolate and elemental grandeur with its subdued male vocals and cello), it is with “The leaden sky” that the album reaches its ultimate peak. The track commences with brooding, feverish washes of guitar, then grows into a graceful cinematic soundscape that veers from chaotic to dreaming and back again. Dramatic, emotional, melancholic, epic, dynamic shoegazer / post-rock in the spirit of Sigur Ros, Flying Saucer Attack, Mira, Mogwai and Labradford.
